Wild Sweets – 2017 Chinese New Year Collection

NOTE: All food and beverages were complimentary, but all opinions are based on my own experience.

With the Christmas holidays over, Wild Sweets has moved on to the next holiday – Chinese New Year or also known as Lunar New Year. The new collection is available until February 4, 2017 or until supplies last.

2017 Year of the Rooster Chocolate Art Bouchées Series

Putting a twist to their Bouchées Series, Wild Sweets has reinvented the flavours to fit in with the lunar new year collection. They feature a cookie with caramel nut jam and a soft ganache made with different fruit-based liquid caramels. They are then enrobed in a bean-to-bar dark chocolate and topped with a beautiful almond paste disc with a rooster head design.
